Dignity in Poverty: In Conversation with Nicole Croteau
September 4, 2019 @ 17:00 - 19:00
French | Open to all | Registration required before August 28, Book your tickets
Cost: $20 (Drink and appetizers included)
Testimonial-exchange with Nicole Croteau, author of “Heureux les pauvres?” about her experience of poverty and her path of resilience. After 15 years of professional life, Nicole Croteau was sent into a spiral of impoverishment. She will tell us about the struggle she endured to maintain her dignity, with the support of those around her, leading to her inner healing. She will describe poverty from the inside, in order to help us identify our frequent prejudices against those who receive social assistance, and will help to see them as people in their own right, each with their own history, their sufferings, and their legitimate desire for happiness and fulfillment. The insightful testimony of this brave woman will lead to more empathy, support and respect for our fellow citizens.
